We are very blessed to have a large 2-car garage that the kids can play in when it's raining or too cold to play outside. When they start getting too rowdy in the house, it's time for garage time.
Our house was a foreclosure and the previous owners left the desk (below). Timothy really wanted some space all to his own so we spray painted green and brown (his favorite color). He often does art projects or he'll play with army men at his desk. He loves that he has a place to store his treasure. (Looks like he was playing moon sand on this day)
this swing on a blog and we knew we had to make it. It was so inexpensive--some rope, some wood, and and an old rug. We also have a regular swing, a trapeze bar, and an infant swing for Hannah that we rotate out. That keeps it interesting.
We like that our children have somewhere to go and just play. They may not realize it, but they're very blessed.
Now, the upstairs of the garage is finished out and is sort of a toy catch-all at the moment. One day it's going to be something we're proud of, but right now it's lots of toys on the floor!
